The Process

Upon identification of a driving need or concern:

  • Physician sends referral to Driving and Mobility Services clinic at KU Medical Center.

  • Clinic staff contact client to schedule driving assessment.

  • After initial driving assessment, additional simulation and/or evaluation may be recommended, including time spent behind-the-wheel of a vehicle on the road.

Using state-of-the-art technology in driving simulation and visual, physical, and cognitive testing, the staff at KU Medical Center can help clients find out if they are fit to drive and help individuals take the necessary steps to get to that point.
